Thanks to everyone who sent emails and left voice mails. WordPress.com is alpha / beta testing so there will be the occasional downtime. It is all part of the fun that comes with getting a chance to play with a very early version of final software. The first stage of software testing is called alpha testing and the second stage is called beta testing. More here for those interested. We have entered a new age where prototype / release / feedback / improve is the way of our world. This was generally not previously seen in the public domain. However it greatly accelerates a products time to market. Examples of co-creation and collaberation at its best. And to those who have been complaining about my spelling and grammar this is my personal weblog not final proofed copy for the NYT. So you are getting it raw as I write it. Enjoy the ride. I know I am.
